“In case you haven’t been on the internet for a few days and missed the news, folks in the design world (and folks with eyes) are, um, conflicted about the latest iOS 7 interface and it’s brighter, flatter, pastel-ier redesign,” Angela Watercutter writes for Wired.
“So, naturally, they’ve created a Tumblr to poke fun at it, and the aesthetics of its designer, Apple SVP Jonathan Ive,” Watercutter writes. “Jony Ive Redesigns Things is the work of 26-year-old web and app designer Sasha Agapov, who launched the Tumblr shortly after the Apple Worldwide Developers conference keynote unveiling iOS 7 ended.”
Watercutter writes, “Agapov, an avid Apple fan and iPhone devotee since the first generation, adds that his blog isn’t necessarily a diss against Ive, whom he’s admired as a designer for years, but ‘I do think those icons and colors need some love and caress.’ After installing iOS 7 he said he enjoyed the improvements to the user experience but could only cope with the design’s bright colors for so long.”
